    Solar Eclipse

    So my wife and I traveled out to see the 2012 solar eclipse on it's centerline of travel, and I shot it with my D800 + 70-200 + 1.7x Teleconverer. here's a combined image of the sequence. these were all at 1/8000 and f40 IIRC to try and get the sun shape as best I could.



    since I was stopped down so far, I got some interesting diffraction patterns on some images, normally this is not good, but I thought these turned out interesting enough to process:





    it was known as a "ring of fire" eclipse rather than a total eclipse since the moon was a little further from earth on the pass so it couldn't cover the entire sun. here's the middle of the eclipse sequence, and a great example of why it's called a 'ring of fire'...

    It was pretty cool we drove a couple hours to be right on the centerline of the eclipse
